"In out, in out, shake it all about", Challenge #117

The funny tangle pattern "Schway" (by Rick Roberts from Zentangle®), or "Aroz" (by Scott A. posted in May 2012) was the subject of the Diva's Weekly Challenge #117.
I didn't want to do anything that looks similar to the examples. And I wondered if it is possible to draw the arrows in more ways than only in orderly rows. The attempts on my scratch paper went fine! Therefore I drew some concentric circles on my ZIA paper (10.5 x 10.5 cm). Of course by hand, so they are not very regular.... just what I like!! In fact drawing the arrows was a piece of cake and for the overall look it didn't need more than just a little shading:

Tangle: Schway/Aroz

This piece recalls the good old days, when I studied to become a teacher!! On special occasions we loved to do the "Hokey Cokey" ("Hokey Pokey" in the US): "Put your left hand in, put your left hand out, etc.", which we did in a circle. More about this song and play I will post on the "Lovely lyrics " page. 
This funny video is from YouTube:
